The Press Room, Nerovivo & No Black Tie

One way to spend a chilled-out evening: start with a light meal at Pavilion's Press Room.

A take on the French Landaise salad. Lacks foie gras but still features the crunch of duck gizzard, the succulence of breast meat and savoriness of duck rillettes.

Cream of potato and leek soup with scallops. Not bad at all for RM22++.

The Press Room's signature salad (RM18++) represents what the people want: a poached egg over grilled artichokes and asparagus.
Earlier entry on The Pressroom at Pavilion: Sept. 11, 2012.

For dessert, take a drive over to Nerovivo; the Italians sure know their sweets.

Chocolate indulgence: dark choc fondant with white choc ice cream, expertly executed.

Rum baba _ brioche in rum and sugar syrup, served with whipped cream and fruits.


After stuffing the stomach, walk over to No Black Tie for music to soothe the soul.


Performers like the Az Samad Trio ensure that a lovely time will be enjoyed by all.



The highlight of NBT's Japanese menu might be the combo of foie gras & unagi, crisply battered. Melt-in-the-mouth decadence.



No Black Tie's cointreau ice cream is a pleasure, even if the liquor content seems low.



NBT's Sangria is worthwhile; get a jug & linger here for as long as possible.



Rest assured though, the lychee martini is potent enough to end the night on a high note.

  2. Hey Sean!!!!!!
    I've been reading your blog since 2009 (And thanks to your postings, I think I've most probably been to 90% of the places you've blogged about in Publika and have always been thankful for the good finds) but we've yet to meet.

    I was there too at No Black Tie for the recent Az Samad Trio show. Missed the chance of meeting you. Please don't say you were sitting right behind me? I was on the far left, video-ing the performance.

    Sigh. So close. Perhaps we'll have better luck the next time? :)

    And thank you for coming for the show, glad you enjoyed it!

    1. Yin: ooh, I remember you, both from your comments on my blog when Solaris dutamas first opened up (way before publika), and I definitely remember seeing a girl behind a video camera, but I didn't recognize you as anyone I knew. I was sitting on the other side of the room, on the far right =) but yeah, hopefully we'll bump into each other and be able to say hi someday, whether in nbt, publika or somewhere totally unexpected :D
